Vintage, rare and unusual guitars are also sought out and offered when ever we can.

    This handmade American model features a solid sitka spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, an ebony fingerboard and scalloped X bracing. Features aside, it sounds incredible and is a dream to play. I imagine in 5 years time when it's bedded in it'll be a behemoth.

    £ 3,199.00
  • £ 3,170.00

    From the North of Ireland, this handmade guitar features a solid cedar top, solid mahogany back and sides and a 45 mm nut width. It's everything you'd expect  from Lowden, with a full crisp tone and excellent balance, with added warmth thanks to the cedar and mahogany combination.

    £ 3,170.00
  • £ 3,099.00

    This Atkin is inspired by Gibson's LG series of guitars, and it sounds phenomenal. It is a relic'd guitar, but not to the point of excess; the guitar still shines. There's a big old Gibson thump to this guy, and there's a classic bluesy twang there too. Rather special, all in all.

    £ 3,099.00
  • £ 3,099.00

    A stunning handmade guitar from Alister and his team, with a torrified sitka spruce top, and mahogany neck, back and sides. The fretboard is made of santos rosewood (Pau Ferro), and this little guy certainly packs a punch, with pre-war scalloped bracing to help that projection and resonance.

    Dreamed up btween Alister and James in our guitar department, the Starling pays tribute to a war era Gibson design. The Oriole was an affordable Kalamazoo banded model featuring an attractive combo of maple back and sides offset with tortoiseshell binding - originals were ladder braced and laminated backs where Alister's is X braced and solid so it's a...

    We've been huge fans of Atkin for a while here at Forsyths and the 37 models are always fantastic. The torrified spruce and east Indian rosewood combo is a classic and Atkin do lacquering like no-one else: their own special mix to get that aged look, which isn't just for show, it also brings out the tone so much more. What you have here is a professional...

    Atkin only make good guitars, and the Essential D is firmly in the category of "good guitars".

    £ 1,599.00 £ 1,801.00

    If you squint your eyes, you could easily confuse this guitar with a D-28. Another great guitar from Eastman, with a solid thermo-cured adirondack spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides. The thermo cured bit means they've dried out the top, giving better projection and a guitar that sounds played in already. It's amazing.

    £ 1,769.00
  • £ 1,549.00 £ 1,699.00
  • £ 1,599.00

    A thermo cured top means that the wood has been baked at a specific temperature for a prolonged period of time to get rid of the oils and water from the wood - the result is that this guitar sounds more matured, louder and with a much better bass response. With a solid adirondack spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, you get a fantastically...
